...In addition to that we have Cyclone Yasi in North Queensland that is pretty freakin massive and hit the coast as a category 5 cyclone with an eye of 30 somthing km's. Its so strong that it will prob go over a couple of hundred kms inland to where my bf is currently working in the minefields. Pretty scary stuffs.
I've been following that. It looks like the damage so far has been really bad.
